Excerpt: I wrote a review prior, saying that if G*d him/herself needed to make one lens to rule them all...it would be this lens. I know that sounds a tad dramatic. I don't much care for hyperbole either, so bear with me here.
Pros: Amazing Focal Range, Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Simply awsome. Excellent performance under different light conditions (better if attached to a 40D or higher camera). Versatile as the wide angle and 300mm could be. However is not for every one, since it is heavy and you need to be inshore in order to manage the weight under sport or social event...

Summary: Outstanding product. One of Canon's best lenses. It is shade heavy but once you get used to its weight, it serves you well through the entire focal length range from near wide 28mm to long telephoto 300mm.
Excerpt: The EF 28-300 f/3.5-5.6L is my walkabout lens on my 7DII. Although it is fairly large for a compact lens, I have no issues with its weight or size. It's not as sharp as my Canon prime lenses but its versatility far outweighs that issue.
Summary: The Canon EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM AF Lens is the finest piece of glass I have ever used. I have it mounted on my 5D MK III and shoot with ISO set at 1250 and have some of the best photographs I have ever seen or taken.
Excerpt: I bought this lens for a trip to the American southwest, where I'd be shooting the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley and a variety of other vista landscapes. I'm a perfectionist who really likes to use the proper lens for the application, and I was wondering if there really is a one-perfect-all 'rounder...
